  • Notes 
    • MRS. NATHANIAL WILDFONG.

      A very sudden death took place last night, at nine o'clock, when Mrs. Nathaniel Wildfong, of Waterloo Township, who was in her accustomed health, excepting having had a few recent attacks of heart trouble, passed quietly away. After calling her husband, she sat in a rocking chair and expired. The deceased was in her 48th year, her maiden name being Sophia Frickie. She leaves to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and fond mother; her husband, three sons and two daughters, Nathaniel, of Detroit, Wesley and Earl at home; Mrs Adam Flatt and Catharine, the youngest daughter, eight years of age. The deceased was one of those always found in a happy mood and was a general favorite with her neighbors and friends who were shocked to hear of her sudden demise. The funeral was held from her late residence, at two o'clock, on Tuesday afternoon, where a service was held , thence to Warner's cemetery for interment.
